Entertainment and Active Ageing

Athens Strollers

The Athens Strollers walk around Athens every weekend and invite Greek and non-Greek nationals, alike.
The Athens Strollers are a hiking club, unique in 2 respects:
  • we walk in nature, near and around Athens, which makes our venues quickly accessible;
  • we walk for 2 ½ hours on Saturdays and 1 ½ hours on Sundays, which makes our walks attractive to families, children and dogs, even to the less fit
There is no charge for being a member or participating in a walk.

The club started over 10 years ago. All necessary information is posted early on the club's dedicated website: www.athens-strollers.gr. Here you will find detailed instructions on how to get to each walk start, the degree of difficulty, necessary equipment etc. Each walk concludes with an (optional) meal at a nearby taverna.

If you live in Athens and you want to be informed about cultural and entertainment events, happenings,   lifestyle etc.  then you can subscribe in the

Chums Club is a social club with a difference

It is a members' club where you can meet like-minded professional people of the baby boomer generation. You can attend high quality events hosted by expert guides in England and Europe.
These days most people want to book their own holiday direct with the hotel and with the airlines but they would like to travel with others (especially if they are single). Chums Club offers this in a very modern way. Also you can read ways to make the most of your third age in articles commissioned from specialist writers.
